RB Todd Gurley, who has been on an every-other-day practice schedule and won't participate in preseason games along with most of the Rams other starters, says he wouldn't mind taking a trip to Hawaii. "I would love to just go to Hawaii, sit back, sip on some pineapple juice," Gurley said. However, Sean McVay said it was "More likely than not" that Gurley will NOT make the trip. It would not be surprising if a few other starters stayed back as well.

Among notable plays: Aqib Talib intercepted a deep pass from Derek Carr to open 7-on-7 play... In 11-on-11, Jared Goff looked sharp... Goff completed a few paces into tight windows, including one to WR Robert Woods, who had several DBs draped on him throughout the workout... Goff also completed touchdown pass to TE Gerald Everett between two defenders... WR Cooper Kupp continued to standout... On one play, Kupp found himself wide open to haul in a deep pass down the sideline from Goff... Goff took some chances down field to TE Tyler Higbee, but the connection was a few inches off, a couple passes fell incomplete off Higbee's fingertips.
